His mother, Valeire Abbot, was a well-known Toronto jazz pianist and vocalist who was invited by Louis Armstrong to tour as a jazz singer with his orchestra. Over the past 4 decades Eugene has shared the stage with such great artists of the music world as Gordon Lightfoot, k.d.

Most recently, Eugene was featured at Vancouver Island’s Island Folk Festival, where he performed excerpts from his latest CD “Eugene Smith – Now and Forever”. Eugene lives on Vancouver Island, where he has a large following, and tours Ontario in the summer months, sharing his love and passion for music wherever he goes! “Sometimes just the feel of a song says a lot about where it’s coming from and the Spirit in which it was written…There’s a real delightful feel about ‘Eugene’s music’ that only the performance carries.” Murray McLaughlin
